Place holder talk for WMHack19 mentoring program
Soon we will create a detailed plan for Friday for matching participants with projects, sessions and skills.
For now you can follow our progress here on this etherpad: https://etherpad.wikimedia.org/p/WMHack19_Mentoring
If you would like to be involved in further developing this plan we welcome your help, please comment on this task.
General Hackathon day 1 Overview:
All participants attend the hackathon opening which will include a newcomer / mentoring briefing.
Rm 1 - technical overview NEXT mentor matching NEXT nothing
Rm 2 - poster creation NEXT skill share overview NEXT project matching
During the first session: newcomers will join the technical overview session, project leaders will create their posters, and mentors will add themselves to the mentoring page
**Changes from previous years:
- Separating mentor matching and project matching
- Physical skill share board incorporated into newcomer program
- Shorter "open mic" in opening, see the flow chart for more details
- We will have a dedicated "helpers" telegram group where folks from the technical help desk ( @debt ) and mentors will all join together to enable quick responses and help for newcomers / mentor related needs.
